THAILAND. Thailand’s Tourist Police has recently launched a mobile application for tourists to ensure their safety throughout their stay in the kingdom, the Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT) announced on Friday, July 8.
‘I Lert U’ mobile application for tourists is downloadable for free from Google Play for Android phones and the App Store for IOS phones. The application, meant to allow visitors to enjoy peace of mind throughout their travels in Thailand, is available in English and Thai languages.
The app is connected to the Tourist Police 1155 Emergency Response Centre, where interpreters and translators are available to help foreign tourists in their native tongues.
The tourist police force may be contacted via the app at any time, around-the-clock. If a tourist needs assistance, an officer will be sent to the area right away. Additionally, visitors may upload a snapshot of the incident to the app to request assistance.
The Royal Thai Police’s Tourist Police section is responsible for ensuring the security and welfare of visitors to Thailand. The Tourist Police, which has approximately 1,900 personnel, works all around the country, especially in popular tourist areas like Bangkok, Phuket, Samui, and Chiang Mai.
The Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT), the primary government organization in charge of establishing the kingdom as a top travel destination, collaborates closely with all relevant public and commercial organizations to make every effort to avoid unfavorable events from harming both foreign and local travelers.
